Photographer, Artist, Designer

nirzharAs a father of two in Orange County, I enjoy finding the joy, the seriousness, the real personality of every child and family I photograph. Upclose, personal, these photos capture the real essence.

The love of my life and I have been married for 17 years this March. And two handsome boys later, I still find her my most beautiful subject.

Growing up in Nepal

As you may have guessed, I wasn’t born near the salt waters of Southern California, but in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal. One of our goals is to go back to Nepal and trek through the Himalayas, something I regret never having done while I lived there. Like we so often do in life, I did not appreciate the beauty that surrounded me during my youth. I hope to experience that beauty with my wife and our boys soon.

Nirzhar is a unique name, even for Nepal. The easiest way to say my name is by rhyming ‘near-far’ with Nirzhar (‘near-zaar’).

Art, Design and Photography in Orange County California

I’ve always been in art and design, starting my career almost 16 years ago – but photography with the elements of design is what has captured me. What propelled me into becoming a photographer in Orange County California was seeing the looks of happiness when I would give photos as gifts. These weren’t the fake ‘thanks’ smiles we all sometimes get when we give a gift they rather not get – but a truly happy and grateful smile.
